Kingsley Coman earns Bayern its sixth Champions League trophy

Unbeatable Bayern Munich in this years edition of the Champions League was once again unbeatable as they edged out Paris Saint Germain to win their sixth Champions League trophy in a match that would go down as one of the greatest finals of all time.

Champions League: Bayern Munich 2:0...
Champions League: Bayern Munich 2:0 Inter Milan

Kingsley Coman, who was the only change from Bayern’s previous game made the radical difference to haunt his former club, Paris Saint-Germain, as his second-half header did enough to guide Bayern Munich to a 1-0 victory in the Champions League final in Lisbon.

The Frenchman justified his inclusion by Hansi Flick on the hour when he headed the winner as the champions of Germany overcame their French counterparts to clinch a sixth European crown.

Bayern have now completed a Bundesliga, DFB Pokal, and Champions League treble for only the second time in the club’s history, and manager Hansi Flick who came close to winning the Champions League, as a player, far back in 1987 can now savor the moment as a coach.

The German champions put in a dominant display in the season’s Champions League, racking up 11 successive wins straight from the group stages through the final.

For the entire PSG team and manager, it was an agonising failure at the final hurdle as the early chances missed came back to haunt them and they were denied the opportunity of finally replicating their domestic dominance on European football’s biggest stage.
